Not only was it rock moss, but a moss found only on an arctic Canadian island.

Years latter a chemical property from that moss was used in a drug call Gleevec which treats lukemia very effectively. In many instances Gleevec negates the necessity of the incredibly expensive and painful bone transplant therapies.

If idiot teabaggers ahd there way the original research would never have been done and we would have no Gleevec.

Teabaggers wonder why they get zero respect.
